MYSTERY HOUSE Mystery House -- that strange publishing firm owned by Dan and Barbara Glenn -- where each new novel is acted out by the Mystery House staff, before it is accepted for publication. Mystery House was a program in the 1950s, but not your "run of the mill"-type program. Actually, it was more of a proving ground for novels. Dan and Barbara Glenn owned a publishing company named "Mystery House" located at 70 Park Avenue, New York City. Dan and Barbara decided to...

Classified as a juvenile crime drama but written and acted with more adult style than most of the breed, "The Green Hornet"---whose protagonist fought crime by infiltrating or even partnering (initially) with known criminal operations, which deceive police into believing him a wanted criminal himself---was the creation of George W. Trendle and Fran Striker, the brains and head writer behind "The Lone Ranger" (whose protagonist, according to storyline, was the great-uncle of...

MATINEE THEATER Matinee Theater represented a serious attempt by CBS to provide quality dramatic programming for its Sunday afternoon listeners. A continuation of the series Dangerously Yours, it was renamed Matinee Theater with a view towards presenting "a greater range of stories". That broader scope was able to accommodate such episodes as "Beautiful Dreamer" (the Stephen Foster story) and "The Love Story of Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning". Victor Jory...

The person who generated the list of names, addresses, and SSNs is Mr. Neil Sankey, a former British policeman whoâs now a licensed private investigator in Los Angeles. Even a person untrained in investigation can see, through simple cross reverencing, that the majority of items listed here do have an obvious connection with Barack Obama, or one of his (apparently numerous) aliases, or of a family member. This information dovetails with the information uncovered by Wayne Madsen that Barack...

(175 Episodes) "Dr. Christian," was broadcast by CBS every Sunday from Nov 07, 1938 thru January 06,1950. It was a soap opera, but not your every day soap opera. This soap opera played like a serial drama (as each episode was complete), but to keep listeners abreast of the 'goings-on', past activity was referred to within other episodes, as was/is done with all other soap operas. Dr. Christian was portrayed by Jean Hersholt; you may recall that Jean also played Shirley Temple's...

STAND BY FOR CRIME This show, from the early 1950s, is a good example of the true story style of delivery made popular in radio's classic crime shows Gangbusters and Mr. District Attorney. Of course, the best and most popular of the true crime shows was Dragnet -- the monotone, "just the facts" style demanded by Jack Webb in the show made two points at once: first, that the show wasn't a typical melodramatic crime show, as had been on radio since "the good old days", and...

Tales of the Texas Rangers (Volume normalized) My favorite OTR show. I noticed that other internet offerings of this program had variable volume between and within shows, so I volume-normalized these files (with Audition) for consistent volume throughout each show, with all the shows the same. They're all 22050 Hz sampling rate and 32 Kbps MP3 encoded (most were that to begin with), and the MP3 tags have been set consistently. NO noise reduction was done.

Hopalong Cassidy is a fictional cowboy-hero, created in 1904 by Clarence E. Mulford and appearing in a series of popular stories and later novels. Here the character appears as a rude, rough-talking 'galoot'. Beginning in 1935, the character, played by William Boyd was transformed into the clean-cut hero of a series of 66 immensely popular films, only a few of which were based on Mulford's works, but which led, in turn, to a comic book series modelled after the films. On June 24, 1949, Hoppy... ( 3 reviews )
ROCKY FORTUNE In the days prior to From Here To Eternity, Frank Sinatra's popularity was waning and this private eye show was an attempt to remedy that. In it, Frank played Rocky Fortune, a "footloose and fancy-free young man," frequently unemployed, who took numerous, adventurous odd jobs. It was a relatively undistinguished series; definitely a "B grade" radio series, saved by Sinatra's charm and a tongue-in-cheek approach. Rocky Fortune appeared on NBC for only a short...
